Overview: American Kenpo Karate is a system of personal development utilizing a combination of different styles of martial arts including Kenpo Karate, Kung-Fu, Judo and Tai Chi. Students will learn self control, self discipline, gain emotional maturity, build confidence and self esteem along with the connection between their mind and body. This system teaches both hard and soft styles of martial arts including stances, punches, kicks, blocks, self-defense, forms (katas), sparring and conditioning. Students will use a belt system for ranking and will be tested to receive a promotion in rank.

The ranking system is as follows:

We concentrate on a well rounded martial arts program with a balance of three main aspects:


1 – Self Defense: Techniques that are designed for various attacks, grabs, chokes, kicks, punches, weapons and multiple attacks. The concept is to teach students how to evade or counter
many different attacks.
2 – Forms or Katas: Set patterns of techniques used for practice, perfecting form, building strength, poise and concentration. This will increase your attention span and give you the enhanced ability to focus and accomplish tasks.-

3 – Free-Style Sparring: This is the practical application of training where you put everything together. The action is spontaneous and unpredictable, therefore challenging. You will learn to communicate and maintain control mentally, physically and emotionally. Consistent sparring practice develops you into a mature, responsible and assertive individual.
